Fire fighters were called to a street in the northern Italian city of Modena after a resident reported a buzzing sound coming from a rubbish bin.

Fearing it could be a bomb, the passerby immediately called the police after noticing the vibrations coming from a bin for recycling plastic as he walked by on Wednesday evening.

Fire fighters rushed to the scene on via Viterbo, and the area was cordoned off as they inspected what was causing the vibrations. 

They soon realised that the device was not a bomb, but a sex toy which had been cast aside with its batteries still working, the local news website, Modena2000.it, reported.
